Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants with adverse events of grade 3 or higher [ Time Frame: 28 weeks ]
    • Local adverse events of grade 3 or higher (pain and skin reactions including induration)
    • Systemic adverse events of grade 3 or higher (fever, chills, headache, nausea, vomiting, malaise and myalgia)
    • Clinical or laboratory confirmed grade 3 or higher on physical examination or retests adverse events Any event attributable to the vaccine involving a discontinuation of vaccination regime.

  • Virological [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    Proportion of patients with undetectable viral load (<37 copies / mL) at 12 weeks


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of adverse events grade 1 and 2 within 14 days after each immunization (weeks 2, 4 and 6) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
  • Changes in the specific immune response [ Time Frame: 28 weeks ]
    Measured by ELISPOT visits in weeks 2, 4, 8, 12, 16 and 28 compared to baseline and screening for dendritic cell vaccine and pegylated interferon.

  • Changes in levels of viral reservoir. [ Time Frame: 28 weeks ]
    Measure the proviral DNA visits in the weeks -44, -36, 4, 8, 12, 16 and 28 compared to baseline and screening.

  • Proportion of patients with changes in any value of the levels of inflammatory markers, microbial translocation and immune activation [ Time Frame: 28 weeks ]
    In visits at weeks 4, 16 and 28 compared compared to baseline and screening

  • Proportion of patients with viral rebound [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    Two consecutive obtaining measurements of plasma viral load> 37 copies / mL separated by at least 15 days after discontinuation of antiretroviral therapy.

  • Proportion of patients with autoimmunity markers induced by the vaccine as measured by: antithyroid antibodies (antithyroglobulin, antithyroid peroxidase), antinuclear antibodies, antiphospholipid antibodies and rheumatoid factors. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
    Evaluation on autoimmunity with antithyroid antibodies (antithyroglobulin, antithyroid peroxidase), antinuclear antibodies, antiphospholipid antibodies and rheumatoid factor at screening, baseline and week 16.

  • Changes in the transcriptome of patients visits weeks 4, 16 and 28 compared to baseline (week -12) [ Time Frame: 28 weeks ]
    Weeks 4, 16 and 28 compared to baseline

  • Evaluation of the specific immune response trought IFN-gamma production in vitro at screening and baseline [ Time Frame: week 0 ]
    Proportion of patients with IFN-gamma production in vitro measured by ELISPOT at screening and baseline

  • Evaluation of the specific immune response thought dendritic cell maturation markers in vitro at screening and baseline [ Time Frame: week 0 ]
    Proportion of patients with dendritic cell maturation markers in vitro measured by flow cytometry at screening and baseline

  • Evaluation of the specific immune response thought T-cell proliferation in vitro at screening and baseline [ Time Frame: week 0 ]
    Proportion of patients with T-cell proliferation in vitro measured by CFSE (carboxyfluorescein succinimidyl ester) at screening and baseline
